We were lucky to get a last minute booking for Saturday evening. This was a repeat visit to Ivy Grill and it didn't disappoint. We all enjoyed our meals and left very full.

Main course 45 minutes in coming and cold. As we were then going to be late for a theatre show, no choice but to gulp down and go!

I have been here many times but this time the main course was awful. After 20 mins I was really sick. The meal was not as described. The ‘crispy’ skin on the chicken was not crispy but soggy and grey. Very disappointed. As soon as my food arrived o regretted it. I had the chicken bourgonion
Service was amazing though.

We had a perfect dinner here, three generations celebrating before going to the theatre. Very nice place, the best location, the loveliest staff and good food and drinks with a wide selection for all. Gorgeous! We went back the next morning for an absolutely delicious breakfast.

Went here last week and chose it primarily because of the vegetarian/vegan menu as one of our party is vegan - I also chose this because of the imaginative non vegetarian/vegan which was important. I certainly made the correct choice! The vegan was more than happy with the menu as were the meat eaters amongst us. I shall be going again - it did not disappoint.

We had a disappointing experience although generally like The Ivy. We arrived at 9:30 PM after the theatre and it wasn't too busy.....but the service didn't reflect that. The main order had several mistakes and despite asking for condiments and an original order of truffle fries we didn't get the fries and had to request the condiments 3 times. Might go to this location again but our friends definitely said it wasn't worth it.

We came for the Sunday brunch and were more than happy with the food selection on offer. The staff were friendly although we did struggle to catch someone’s attention when we were ready to order desert. We didn’t feel rushed which is always nice when having a lazy Sunday lunch.

overall we had a super meal, the food was delicious, unfortunately the service was not good, very slow, we had to ask for everything, the menu, drinks, when we wanted to order, we didn't feel that the staff waiting on us were well trained, we were asked about coffee while we ordered dessert, which then came up with our dessert! had to ask for the bill too, will return as i am sure staff training with sort out these problems.

Booked this restaurant because it had good reviews. When booking, I was asked if there were any special requirements. I wrote that my husband and I were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary (Golden).

So, so disappointed that nothing was mentioned. A 'golden candle' could have been placed on the table and how happy it would have made me and my husband. I booked this meal as a surprise for my husband.

Would be interesting to know what went wrong!

Came here for a brunch on a saturday for my fiance’s 30th. Absolutely wonderful food, nice booth not sat right on top of others which is nice considering its was busy. Enjoyed a wonderful brunch, food and drink amazing. Only slight downside was after a couple of glasses of fizz we decided to match some wines to our food and when asked for the wine list again the waitress seemed put out, making us feel a little embrassed. Overall a lovely afternoon just that last thing slightly took away from our celebration.

My second visit. The first time I was offered to eat outside and I did as pleasant weather permitted it. This time, although it was a nice morning as well, they pretended the outside area was not available so I was shown to a table with no view. The staff looked bored out of their mind and they made no effort at hiding it

It doesn’t say in Opentable, but apparently you can’t book for drinks. They only gave us the table for 45 minutes, and we were rushed through an important business meeting. And it’s really noisy so never again for business meetings.

Not the normal ivy experience, tables so close together the waiters back side is in your face when they're serving the table next to you. Food ok, nothing special . Rice was over done and hard. Not sure how you can get rice wrong but they did.
